This year's finance bill has sparked significant backlash since its proposal. Many Kenyans, already burdened by high taxes, have utilised every available platform to voice their grievances to the government about the tax strain they are experiencing even before the bill is passed.

The bill has become one of the most talked-about topics in the country, leading to widespread protests with many citizens taking to the streets to oppose it. Several notable figures have joined these protests, including:

Boniface Mwangi

The political activist has been prominently featured across various social media platforms. He has been actively advocating for the protests and was seen in various locations in the CBD.

"It's too early to be arrested. Let's regroup and observe police movements. If you get arrested, resist. Sit down, scream, drag yourself. Don’t make it easy for them. Try to escape. If they manage to put you in their car, text your name to 0716200100," he advised.

Carey Priscilla

The well-known digital creator, who has been trending for the past 24 hours after announcing her third pregnancy, was seen on the streets carrying placards during the protests.

"Tax policies should not excessively burden ordinary citizens, especially those in vulnerable communities already grappling with inflation and low wages!" she declared in her caption.
